#TeamRiky takes an early lead in The Voice SA Season 3!

By the end of the exciting second episode of The Voice South Africa Season 3, Coach Riky Rick had eked out a lead for himself with a total of five singers on #TeamRiky.


First up for their consideration tonight was 26-year-old Amy Tjasink from Cape Town, who has travelled the world entertaining guests on cruise ships, and returned to South Africa from her new home in London especially to audition on The Voice SA. Accompanying herself on the acoustic guitar, Amy performed Bebe Rexha’s “Meant To Be”, and immediately Lira noted that this was “a very different voice” and got up in her chair to dance along. But it was the two men who turned their chairs for Amy. “Riky is a rapper, he doesn’t know that much about voices,” Coach Francois campaigned, but Amy confessed that she really wanted to be on #TeamRiky all along.

With #TeamRiky taking the lead with the most members so far, the next contestant to take the stage was the 21-year-old Michael Jackson fan Mo George, also from Cape Town. He selected the powerful Etta James ballad “At Last” to show off his vocal ability, and impressed Coach LIRA and Francois van Coke enough to turn their chairs. “You’re an exceptional singer,” Lira said, and wrote Mo’s name down in her team book, “as a way of claiming you!” she joked. Francois literally begged, but Mo became the third member of #TeamLira.

Riky Rick listened intently as Joshua Parker performed the Ed Sheeran love song “Perfect” and didn’t just turn his chair, but spontaneously ran onto the stage to hug the 19-year-old performing arts coach from Fourways, Johannesburg. “I know I’m the only one who turned around, but I really, really, really, really want you on #TeamRiky!” he exclaimed.

That means Riky Rick only has 7 slots left open on #TeamRiky, LIRA and Riana each still have 8 slots to fill on their teams, and Coach Francois is getting a bit desperate with 11 slots still left open on #TeamVanCoke.

The battle between the Coaches gets heated in next week’s episode of The Voice South Africa when the Blind Auditions start to become urgent!
